About Giando on the Water

The skyline of Manhattan is unequalled in its scope and splendor. At night, when the lights of the city outnumber… and outshine… the stars in the sky, few sights on Earth can match its radiance. Over the years it has been an inspiration for many of our finest authors and artists.

Through window walls overlooking the East River, Giando on the Water enjoys breathtaking, panoramic views of the city and three world-famous bridges. With this as our inspiration, we created a dining experience that delights guests with exquisitely prepared cuisine presented in an atmosphere of sophistication and elegance. How could we do anything less?

For an exceptional wedding that will be spoken of for years to come, no other venue in New York compares to Giando on the Water. Our planners will transform your most special event into an unforgettable experience that each of your guests will savor.

But Giando is a fine restaurant, too. Visit us anytime; we’re open every day of the week. Giando is the perfect setting for an intimate dinner… a spectacular way to welcome out-of-town clients or guests to our city… a memorable and exciting venue for the grandest of celebrations… a uniquely New York treasure for you to enjoy and speak of for years to come.

At Giando we have the recipe for beautiful memories. .

    Our Beautiful October Wedding!

    Thank you for everything! My husband and I got married on Sunday, October 13th, 2019 and it was amazing!!! Everything was completely smooth and perfect! We booked our wedding in January 2018 and Joe was a true professional and amazing to work with every single step of the way! We communicated a ton and it was not even a bother on either end. Elizabeth, was absolutely fantastic as well! She was amazing to work with and helped to make our vision come to life. The food was amazing! The cocktail hour was amazing! All of our guests can not stop talking about how much they ate at the cocktail hour because the food was so good that they had to take the rest of their meal home. The options were endless and Joe made sure that we had all of the food that we wanted at our wedding. Thank you to the amazing staff for making sure that my husband and I were well fed. Carmen pulled me over and asked when the last time I ate was. I told her not in hours. Her and other ladies pulled plates from every station so my husband and I could have a table to ourselves and they even covered me with a table cloth. When we put in our dinner order, they gave us extra entrees because I could not decide between a couple of items. Carmen also sewed my bustle up because someone stepped on my dress and ripped the hook off, she took my little sewing kit and sewed it up right in the hallway for me. Alex made sure the guys looked good before we made our grand entrance into the party. The team is awesome. Everyone was awesome. I can not speak enough about the great time everyone had!

    Unbelievable Wedding

    I cannot speak highly enough about my experience having my wedding at Giando this past weekend 9/1/19! The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking, you could not ask for a more beautiful backdrop, the skyline is literally your decoration! Not to mention, the beautiful flowers they have on the patio year round! In addition, Joe and his team at Giando, especially Alex, Elizabeth, and Carmen were incredible. Throughout the entire process of planning and on the actual day they were so kind, professional, efficient, organized and fun! The food and the cake were also excellent, people were coming up to me all night raving about the cocktail hour food! I would recommend Giando to anyone looking for a venue for any event! There were no surprises, everything was literally exactly as Joe told us it would be and he was so understanding of any concerns we had any encouraged us to call any time with any questions. My friends and family kept saying all night that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to and that was purely due to Giando. Thank you so much to everyone at Giando who made our wedding the best day of our lives! I can't wait to go back for dinner with the family!

    The most idyllic spot for your big day

    Giando on the Water is the picture perfect setting for a wedding. The view is unbeatable and the price is great for the location and all you get with this venue. Joe is a great organizer and helps make your dream wedding a reality! Alex the maitre d' made sure everything went smoothly on the wedding day and kept the entire bridal party up on what came next. The cake is included which is delicious! The steak is HUGE and delicious and cooked to perfection. The H'ours douvres are perfect and thank God there is an indoor and outdoor area for the coctail hour with air conditing as well as a patio with a view of Manhattan. The venue is so gorgeous that it needs minimal decoration and you can save on the flowers because the NYC Skyline is all the decoration you need and helps bring the party atmosphere to life. I, my family, bridal party and all that I have spoken to about Giando on the Water recommend it as an ideal venue for a wedding. Thank you Joe, Alex and the whole team for the most amazing wedding! I am truly grateful.
